Garber Brothers Store Irene Molway quill iquill iquill@webtv.net My aunt used to go to the Ritz on Tuesday or Thursday nites every week and for the price of admission she would come home with a piece of china. She built a whole set that way. I haven't thought of that in years.

On Saturday & Sunday we would walk to either the Paramount or the St.
George and for 50 cents we would stay from 1:00 to 5:00 . we saw a "B" movie then a rash of cartoons then the main feature and then stay and see them all over again . We also got a newsreel. All to 50 cents. I haven't been to a movie in so long I don't even know what they cost now.

As to Garbers, the one and only thing I ever bought there was a beautiful fake fur coat in "59 and took 2 uses to go there every week and pay for it on layaway. It was $100. That's a lot of bus trips from Dongan Hills at $5. a week.
Dont know whatever happened to that coat???
